NBC pays $7.75B for Olympic rights until 2032

Quote:
The deal covers six Olympics, from 2021 to 2032, and gives NBC rights to all media platforms including TV, internet and mobile. NBC's previous agreement, negotiated in 2011, included four Olympics through 2020 and cost the network $4.4 billion.

I only heard about it this morning. I guess they tape-delayed the announcement.

Wow. I was dead convinced that Fox was going to make a push for this with their new sports platforms and the number of correspondents they sent over to Sochi this year.

If London and Sochi are the indicators of how NBC does the Olympics... not impressed.

So that means who's gonna air the PyeongChang, Tokyo, and those 2022 Winter Games here in Canada? CBC or CTV?

Canadians should have the absolute right to watch channels from not only here, but also from the United States!

The CBC just has Rio 2016. No one has has bought the rights after that.

Considering that Canadian broadcasters were dragging their heels for Sochi and CBC finally won it with only less than 1.5 years before Opening Ceremony, I do not think any of them will be in such a hurry to get Pyeongchang.

Actually there will be even less interest in Pyeongchang. Consider the time difference and the fact that it may not have the NHL players there.

There will be NHL players there, trust me.
